Birthday card: Pink polka

Hi everyone

I made a birthday card today: it's pink and it's polka.
I created this card for +luluputv Challenge#60. I used my 1" circle punch to punch out some thick vellum, which I then coloured using sketch pens. Sketch pens are water based pens. They are cheap and handy. However, if used on paper, they bleed out after a while, as water gets into the pores of paper. But same is not the case with vellum.

Don't forget to blend the colour using your finger or a wet wipe. I used plain old tissue tape to stick them to the card surface, and the colouring hid the tape so neatly.

I used some glossy accents on the stamped balloons and white sakura gelly roll pen to colour the sentiment.

 I used some shiny organza ribbon and a golden wire for more interest.
Since the panel was a bit smaller than the card bae, I coloured my card base using alcohol ink markers, so that it remains permanent.

Here is how it looks on the inside.

I got inspired by the translucent polkas on the moodboard for this Challenge.
They look so simple, and simple is definitely pretty!


  1. Sweet card! Thank you so much for playing along with us at Lulupu this month! :)
